Jackson, who has been removed because I want to use him for my Nano 2012 novel.
Sorry you missed it 😦
So that’s Jackson 🙂 what can his partner do to make him believe he’s loved and wanted?
Today’s prompt about someone losing their memory ended up as the start of a story about a woman who was pulled from the ocean and she can only remember her 5th birthday. Tomorrows prompt is write about a place on a map but gawd knows when I’ll get it done, I’m going out for the day 🙂
I think this calls for a proposal. Do they have gay marriage in the UK? If not, his partner can book a trip to Canada for a wedding and honeymoon.
Awwwww, now that’s an idea! Yes, we do Joan, Civil Partnerships.
I think you’re right, it would be good for him, but, I’m not sure they would have a fairy tale ending 😉
Ooooo, I think Jackson would insist on wearing a bright pink suit and would be so excited!!!! I can just imagine him lol
Great character – I like Jackson. I haven’t got a very good imagination for these things, but I’m sensing that they don’t stay together. Is he the only one doing all the travelling backwards and forwards?
I don’t know how you think about all the details of the characters – you are so brilliant at it. 🙂
Awwww, thanks hon *blush* 🙂
Yeah, I’m sensing that too. Yep, I’m afraid Jackson is the one doing all the tooing and froing, as, although his dad has accepted his sons life choice, I don’t think there’s anyway he would tolerate his partner staying over 😉
Interesting character! Unfortunately, I don’t think there is anything his partner can do to alleviate Jackson’s insecurity. Self-esteem is such an internal thing and can only be elevated when a choice is made to believe in one’s self.
Thanks hon 🙂
Ooooo, now you’ve given me an idea….perhaps something needs to happen, something quite significant, to make Jackson believe in himself.
Thanks honey 🙂
I think you’ll need a scene of dialogue to get this across. FYI — my creative writing teacher drove it into our heads that in fiction, numbers should be spelled out; using numbers is for non-fiction. Has your teacher(s) mentioned that? Love your prompt writing BTW. :).
Hi Brigitte 🙂
Thanks for your comment hon 🙂
Yeah, I’m sure if my writing tutor was reading
these characterisations she’d have a fit! Lol….
But they are only rough and although I LOVE
writing dialogue these are just rough notes about
a character taken from my notebook 🙂
I do think you’re right though, in my head I can
hear Jackson speak, which will definitely be a
challenge when it comes to making him speak
in a story. Especially he accent lol
I’d make a video for him and send on the iPhone.
Lol, good idea Rebecca 🙂
